You know, I've been mulling that one over for months now, I even started a series of drawings to try and figure out the best answer. And here you go, cutting cleanly through all my fretting with a clear and simple answer which, now that you've said it, seems blindingly obvious to me.

I admire and hate people like you

Dear Paul

Thank you for starting this thread. I too have Clytie and am eager to start drawing her for practice-Bargue style.

What a difference it makes having something solid (3D) to practice from instead of photocopies of the Bargue plates.

She was worth the extra dollars to get her here to me 'down under'.

I just have to figure out a good lighting position for her etc.
